of education came up last week several times in the debate. i know this is an issue as a state legislature that you have worked a lot on. >> it is the arizona state legislature sadly is known for being the state that has cut education the most the deeper per capita over the last several years, so arizona schools are struggling, and i teach at arizona state university -- >> bill: oh, wow. >> i have been teaching there for ten years now. before they was a social worker at an elementary school. so this is a really important issue for me. my own story, i think informs why it is important to me. i was homeless when i was a kid, and it was through public education, pell grants academic scholarships that i was able to make it to the middle class and in arizona we're struggling to keep that high-quality education system, and this is a top issue in our race. my opponent wants to eliminate the department of education which would get rid of pell grants. it would eliminate after ford loans, work study program withes, and cut close to a billion dollars of funding from arizona schools. $739

nurse for about twenty years i decided that i need to further my education. my masters degree was done completely online and that gave me the freedom and ability to do my education while i raised my kids and worked full time. raising my kids as a single mom and having them see me get my education online and work full-time has given them the opportunity to see that they can do anything that they want to. i'm currently the hospital administrator for two public hospitals. we serve patients who might not otherwise get care. i teach an online nursing program. i feel that i'm giving back something to the nurses that are attempting to get their bachelors degree like i did. doing online education is something that i suggest to many, many people.

did this too down in tampa that i know all about schools, i know about education i have a proven record, massachusetts schools are number one in the nation and basically saying and i'm responsible for it. what is his real record? how much credit should he get? >> caller: yeah, massachusetts schools are in many ways doing very, very well. that work started well before he was governor and continued well after his short period of time that he was actually an active governor here. he was the steward for four years. during the period of stewardship, the state's share of education spending went down and local spending on schools went up. for instance, my school was cut by 20% during that period, which meant that i had to make some pretty dramatic cuts, proposed dramatic cuts in my school system. we laid off teachers, paraprofessionals, public works employees and others that are critical. he presided over those cuts, because certainly the state budget was out of balance. it was a tough time and as a former chief elected official, i understand how difficult that can be. i don't think he'
